Architonic partner Materials Council, the leading London-based materials consultancy, have announced their next exhibition at Super Brands London during London Design Festival 2013.

 

 

“As a measure of sustainability, buildings, materials and processes are commonly judged by the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) they produce.” says Materials Council. “But, by its nature, quantities of this colourless gas remain frustratingly intangible. In the Scale of Carbon aims to bring carbon dioxide emissions out of the abstract by physically representing the quantity of various architectural materials that can be produced for one tonne of CO2 emissions.”

In the Scale of Carbon, a concept devised by Materials Council using data verified by Dr Craig Jones, the leading authority on embodied carbon, and designed in collaboration with London-based Raw Architecture Workshop, will take place between September 19 – 22 at Super Brands London during London Design Festival 2013.
